GLEN COVE, NY (October 21, 2022) – With just over two weeks till the November Election, New York State Senator Anna M. Kaplan (D-Port Washington), announced that she’s earned the endorsements of the Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York (NYC PBA) and The New York State Troopers Police Benevolent Association. The New York City PBA is the world’s largest municipal police union, representing approximately 24,000 sworn NYPD members who hold the rank of Police Officer. More than 7,000 active and retired, uniformed members of the New York State Police from the rank of Trooper through the rank of Major are represented by the New York State Troopers PBA.

Senator Anna M. Kaplan said “I proudly stand with our law enforcement, and I’m honored to be endorsed by the New York City PBA and the New York State Troopers PBA in my re-election campaign. Public safety is my top priority as Senator, and I will always stand with our police to keep our community safe.”

NYC PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said “New York City police officers need advocates who will speak up on our behalf within the Senate’s Democratic conference as we fight for fair benefits and fair treatment. Senator Kaplan has committed to supporting police officers as workers and to opposing many of the most radical proposals that make our jobs more difficult and our neighborhoods less safe. We are proud to endorse her.”

Jason Sheridan, Vice President, NYS Troopers PBA, said “Anna Kaplan has been a sound voice in Albany, supporting common sense policies. Especially regarding crime and law enforcement. In current times, the Troopers PBA need these reasonable voices in Albany and urge you to send Anna Kaplan back to the State Senate.”
